|General comments:||Good morning. My Toyota Ipsum 1998 model fails while in motion. The problem seems to happen mostly when I apply breaks. It also switches itself off when I yank in either Drive or Reverse. It is a an automatic by the way. Yesterday, I changed the transmission oil and cleaned the Gear oil filter but the problem seemed to worsen. The car would drive a stretch without changing gears. When it does change the gears, it briefly engages and disengages. It sometimes makes some noise as it engages the gears.|
I then checked the spark plugs, plug number 3 and 4 had oil in them. I also noticed that the car consumes a lot of Engine Oil and water.
|What things have gone wrong with the car:||Things have been done on the car:|
